Church News

We say a sad farewell to Marion Wood this month. Marion has served Newbury as Rector at St Mary’s Shaw since 2009. She leaves West Berkshire for Somerset. We pray God’s blessing upon her and her family.


We are holding this event again this year using the St. George’s Church Kitchen and Hall for our meal preparations, with grateful thanks to them for allowing us to use their excellent premises.

This could not take place without willing volunteers who give up this special day to support our elderly people in every way possible to make Christmas Day a remarkable day for them.

Unfortunately, due to the covid situation, we are not able to have our usual event but we have decided to do meal deliveries at home to our elderly and vulnerable who would otherwise be without a cooked meal. Click here to find out more about how the Meal Delivery Service will work.

The Bus of Hope – a new book telling the story of the Bus of Hope is available from Shoemakers Bookshop (£7.50).
